Prince Charles Cinema reviews

By Mariko M.

Love it!

I watched this film before on the Japanese web site by chance in October with English subtitle (no longer available). That occasion, I didn't get the story very well. But this time at cinema, because of this is my second view, I understand whole story and now, I really loved it.
I am sure that this story is not so simple so that if you don't know storyline before you watching, it may be difficult to understand whole story well.

By Antony T.

PCC is now typically £11 for second run movies and is therefore no longer a deal of any kind, unless you have a particular wish to singalong to the Blues Brothers or something similar. You're much better off at the Coronet in Notting Hill Gate which is £7.50 all week, shows first runs and is a real classic old building that hasn't been messed with, unlike so many London cinemas.

By Emily C.

It's alright..... a bit cramped. I get the appeal of older movies but it's a bit of hype really. Chances are you won't get a good view of the movie since it's busy.

By Stuart W.

A terrific cinema full of character and people who genuinely love movies. The staff are always friendly . The seats downstairs are really comfortable. But most importantly they show the best selection of second run and rep films in Londin. Love the Minday double bills and especially their twice monthly screening of The Room. If you are looking for a cinema that lives cinema, look no further.

By Jo A.

i love going to this cinema. its cheap, no frills of course and its refreshing to go somewhere that you don't have to pay a fortune, especially in leicester square. a favourite with young and old a like.

The Prince Charles Cinema is unique in that it’s the only second-run cinema in London, meaning that it shows films that have finished their run on general release, as well as popular cult classics, such as Taxi Driver or A Clockwork Orange. It also has one other huge thing in its favour – the price. Even at the recently-bumped-up rate of £3.50 a ticket, it’s still the best value in London, with a terrific location to boot – just off the north side of Leicester Square.
